Based on the work of Federico Garcia Lorca
This play follows the surviving women from the original play by Federico Garcia Lorca. We find that the Mother, the Bride, and Leonardo’s wife are caught in the same circle of bitterness, unable to forget and move on.
Set on a rural mountainside where the mother has erected a tomb to commemorate the one-year anniversary of her son’s death, she catches the eye of the character of Death along with her companion Moon. As Death tries to figure out why mothers continue to grieve, she forces the mother to relive the past that leads to the fateful confrontation between Leonardo and her son. By weaving past and present events, Death finally understands the truth of motherhood. This forceful play requires powerful actors to enact this rich story.
Running time: 40 minutes.
